Seeing us every six months for a dental checkup is important to your smile! We not only clean your teeth but also check for any hidden oral health issues causing problems. If you do that, you’re already ahead of the game in terms of good oral health habits. However, here are a few other reasons you may want to schedule a dentist appointment with us:

  • You have teeth sensitivity or pain

If you wince every time you bite down on food or drink a cold beverage, that’s usually a sign of a dental problem that needs our attention. You might have a cavity, a chipped or cracked tooth, or early signs of gum disease. You don’t want to ignore mouth pain of any kind, so make an appointment before the problem worsens.

  • There’s something about your smile you want to change.

When you look in the mirror, is there something about your teeth and gums you want to change? Maybe you are finally ready to get the straight teeth you always wanted. Or maybe you want to secure your dentures with implants. From cosmetic to restorative, we have a wide range of services that will give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

  • You have a special event coming up.

Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday party, or a holiday gathering with family or friends, it’s important your smile looks its best. We have many cosmetic treatments that can give your teeth a much-needed boost. We offer professional teeth whitening treatments, veneers, and more. 

  • You are grinding your teeth.

With the holiday season and an economy that is on the rocks, it can be a stressful time of year. As a result, you might be grinding your teeth in response to all this stress. Unfortunately, this habit can damage your smile by chipping, cracking, or even dislodging a tooth. If you’ve noticed an increase in this behavior, call us for a visit. We can work with you on correcting this problem with an oral appliance or our other treatment methods.

  • You are snoring regularly.

It might surprise you to learn that you can see us about your chronic snoring problem. The reason is that snoring is often associated with obstructive sleep apnea. So, if your snoring is paired with bouts of waking up gasping for air, daytime fatigue, headaches, and restless nights of sleep, then it’s time to make an appointment. We can create a custom-fit oral mouthguard that will keep your airways open while you sleep.
